Peculiar Mormyrid on Immediatism podcast

Immediatism is pleased to share three surrealist pieces from the magazine Peculiar Mormyrid. Minneapolis Athenor, the first piece, describes the insurrectionary response to George Floyd's murder. Our Game, the second piece, celebrates the patience of insurrectionary anarchists. The last text, Our World, the Dreamer, has an interesting take on the stance that people are not outside of Nature. Casi Cline claims that humans are cruel, foolish, and self-destructive because Nature is cruel, foolish, and self-destructive.

Rigaer94: Our Statement on the Current Situation

from: Rigaer94

Today, on the evening of June 16, we look back on a militant day and a temporary autonomous zone and look forward with a clenched fist. Yes, we will remember the barricades in Rigaer Straße and their collective defense for a long time with a big smile on our faces. Step by step, the Senate and the owners are burning their fingers at the attempted destruction of our home.

Episode 7: No Back to Normal

Write an anarchist prisoner today!

from Twin Trouble

This is a special episode we’re recording for June 11th International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners. The twins share reflections on prisoner support in general but also in the context of the recent anniversary of the George Floyd uprising, where thousands are facing repression for fighting back against racist cops. Also plenty of thoughts on recent hacks and leaks, and the political ramifications of these high-profile ransomware attacks against Colonial Pipeline, the MPD, Citizen App, and Jones Day leaks.

Eric Laursen on Anarchist Conceptions of The State

Eric Laursen on Anarchist Conceptions of The State

From The Final Straw Radio

One thing that sets anarchism aside from other radical, egalitarian critiques of Power developed in the modern West is the conception of the State as an enemy. But what is the State, how does it work, why and how do we as anti-authoritarians and anarchists oppose it? These questions and more are the focus of the recent book, The Operating System: An Anarchist Theory of the Modern State (AK Press, 2021). This week, we air Scott‘s conversation with Eric on the book, theorizing the State as computer operating system, the necessity of social revolution prior to a political revolution and other heady topics.

An Overview of Militant Anarchism and Anti-Fascism

In 2020–2021, the United States saw a discernible rise in armed politics and violent activism. Multiple factions and movements resorted to violence or the threat of violence to pursue their objectives, and the United States witnessed scenes it had not experienced for decades, such as armed citizens patrolling the streets in Georgia, Kentucky, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and elsewhere.1 Militant anarchists and anti-fascists often took to the streets during this period. On August 29, 2020, Michael Reinoehl became the first anti-fascist responsible for a killing in the United States in 25 years when he shot Aaron Danielson, a member of the far-right group Patriot Prayer, at a rally in Portland, Oregon.2

The Tamarix Project on Immediatism podcast

These two magical green anarchist pieces offer us ways to relate to our animated environment as powerful equals. In Tending the Body of the Goddess, we see that being stuck in grief for Nature can prevent us being a true partner to her. Freedom from grief allows us to flourish along with Nature. The second piece models a style of interaction with the undesirable thoughts that crowd our minds, whether nightmares or just civilization's intrusions; by calling the Night Mare to us, holding her, working with her, and then freeing her, we can become free of our nightmares. Both pieces are beautifully written and quite moving. Immediatism has received strong positive feedback on these. Check out The Tamarix Project, Backwoods Journal at LittleBlackCart.com, or Oak Journal for more like them.

Politics As Religion, Ressentiment & Identitarianism

from Rune Soup

Politics As Religion, Ressentiment and Identitarianism: Finding the Ekumen with Rhyd Wildermuth

Finding The Ekumen gets its name from Ursula K. Le Guin's space utopia, effectively an anarchist version of Star Trek's far more militant United Federation of Planets. So if we are going to have a series of discussions beyond traditional politics, we should begin with a discussion of what politics is, what it isn't and where it might be that you come in. I can think of no one better than Rhyd for that chat, so here it is!

Unoffensive Animal is 5 Years Old

How old is that in dog years?

from Unoffensive Animal

We don’t have a specific calendar date, but about this time five years ago, we started this huge journey. We were born because we felt the animal rights movement needed to be more exposed to radical action and anarchism and couldn’t find any outlets that were using social media to reach out to the mainstream animal liberation community. At the same time, we felt there was a need to bring animal liberation back into the broader anarchist discussion as the radical anti-authoritarian and anarchist movement hugely lacked antispeciesist conversation. We also felt that amplifying prisoner support voices was extremely necessary.

June 11th Manifestations in UK

Write an anarchist prisoner today!

London, UK: Two Manifestations – In the Context of June 11 International Day of Solidarity with Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

We decided to mark June 11 by calling our little ‘manif sauvage’, with two targets: HMP Pentonville and the forthcoming Google London HQ. The point of this is twofold. Firstly, to start again a trajectory which has ebbed during lockdown – that of constant antagonism at the houses of confinement. In a sense, this seems to us to be an affirmation of the sense of the day of June 11th: to clarify that any repressive installations are a part of the global self-sustaining matrix of social control and exploitation.

Religion: Devotional Anarchism

This Topic of the Week is "Devotional Anarchism" which inaugurates the Theme of Three Weeks of "Religion".

Anarchism, like religion, is a word that lumps together a great variety of disparate people, practices and traditions. How contentious is it to lump all these under the banner of religion, and then lump them in with anarchism as well? How to frame the discussion? With what care and respect, devotion or scorn?

International Day of Solidarity w/ Anarchist Prisoners

International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

From Civil Liberties Defense Center

International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

When you’re a political prisoner, the cards are stacked against you in a very purposeful way by the carceral State. Prisoners who feel isolated from their families and friends, uncared for, and forgotten, are more easily demoralized and depoliticized. For these reasons, it means so much for supporters on the outside to show solidarity with incarcerated comrades by maintaining contact through letters, sending books, and raising funds for their commissary needs.

Sabotage in Solidarity w/ Anarchists Prisoners

Rail disruption in solidarity with imprisoned anarchists

From June 11th

Rail disruption in solidarity with imprisoned anarchists

Using copper wire we sent false signals on five sets of freight trains tracks around Cincinnati, ideally delaying or stopping all rail traffic that day. We want to acknowledge the sacrifice of imprisoned anarchists and our desire to halt industrial society.
